I make several brake conversions for the Brompton – fitting disc brakes gives you much more powerful braking, which is also almost completely unaffected by the weather, mud or road dirt. Fitting disc brakes fittings welded on to the frame, but the disc brakes can’t be retrofitted to existing forks, they’re too narrow, so as with the Rohloff Brompton kit I offer several options – either I can convert your existing frame if you send it to me, or I can send you a new frame part with the kit.
Front Disc Brakes: Don’t forget to tell me which colour you want the frame parts painted. Kit includes a new Hope front wheel, brake caliper, rotor and everything else you need.
I can also build up the front wheel with a SON Delux hub and add an Edelux II front light and a rear light if you want to add top quality dynamo lighting at the same time, as shown in the above picture.
Rear Disc Brakes: Because the normal Brompton rear frame won’t work with disc brakes, for these kits I’ll assume you’re fitting either my Rohloff Brompton kit or Alfine kit at the same time. So this kit includes only the brake caliper, rotor, and all parts needed to fit with a gearing upgrade kit.
(I’ve decided to remove the option for a front Avid disc brake – the Avid caliper is bigger, so it can cause problems with folding.)
